A Bold 2020


Jump in feet first

Humpty Dumpty

Had a big fall,

But this little girl

Took no notice at all.


She needed no soldiers,

She needed no men,

She could pick herself up

And start over again.


For this little girl

Was quite different you see -

She believed in herself

And all she could be.


She’d come across books

In which heroes told tales

Of their efforts and passions

And spectacular fails.

The lights that we use

took 1000 tries,

Rockets crashed landed

Before reaching the skies.


So this little girl

had no fear to come last

She had peace in her heart

Possibilities vast.


She knew if she tried

That she might end up burnt

But her life would be filled

With the things that she learnt,

So she jumped in feet first

With gumption a plenty

And set her sights high

For a bold 2020.
